Forum: GratefulDead Subject: "save target as" for soundboards: what does it really mean?

sorry, i am still a bit confused here. I understand downloading soundboards is not permitted here - but there have been several shows i listen to and in the top left corner, just below the stealie logo it says "stream help" and when i right click on that it says "save target as" so i did that and now it is saved on my computer. The show was a soundboard.
So doesn't that mean i just downloaded it?
it will not, however, let me copy to a cd even though i got the traders little helper software.

Any chance someone could kindly explain this to me? i feel kind of stupid. Isn't there any way i can copy that to a cd now that it is on my computer?

thanks!
Paul

That is the link for the stream (such as the "VBR..." symbol as well, which can be saved to your desktop for access to streaming via Windows Media Player by dragging into the "now playing" setlist doohickey once you have it on your desktop and open Media Player). So, that does not represent the "files" on your desktop (or wherever you downloaded the symbol to). At least I think that is what you have down.

If you are the same person that asked below that Arb helped with, you should check out the fantastic AUD shows (search "great" + "AUDs" + "forums" using the search function at the top of forum page and you will find prior threads discussing many!) such as 6 Aug 71. When you open that date/show, you will see individual files you can download for each song, and then use trader's helper to convert them to WAV files for burning. I think you can even download MP3 files for easy lossy burning.

Yep. Go to this link and you can download a variety of file types by rightclicking the song files listed in the table (righthand side rows next to each song):

WT,
I have a question about downloading the auds. Is there a way (that a novice like me can't easily see) to D/L all of the tracks at one time. The few shows that I have downloaded from this site, I have clicked individually on each track and downloaded one at a time. Is there an easier way to do it?? I know, I know, I'm a lazy POS...lol
If this is the only way to do it, then you gotta do what you gotta do, but was just wondering if there was an easier way.

MozillaFireFox has a "Down Them All" Application thats supposed to do that. Never used it myself, but many here say it works fine

As the Forum Lazy Slobs Duo outline above, there is a way...however, for me, if a very simplistic, tediously repetitive option is available, without need for any addt'l effort whatsoever (eg, dloading, opening, installing, troubleshooting, etc.), I am inclined to take it.

So, even though I click and click, twice for each song, I actually consider myself lazier than the Less than Dynamic Duo of SDH & Rasta.

I find the down them all feature to sometimes be more trouble than it's worth. First because I have to go back and delete the tracks I don't want then it bogs my computer down speed wise, worse than torrents. I have DS snail, how I miss my high speed cable. I've reverted back to just doing two or three at a time.

Hey Johnny - My Down Them All allows me to select just the files I want.

After I select "all files", I right click and choose "Down Them All Selection".

This action opens a window which shows all the files selected(FLAC, OGG, VBR, etc). The program allows the user to select(by check-mark) only the files you wish to DL.

Hope this works for you too........

P.S. - You can also set DTA to DL any number of files at once. My DSL offers limited bandwidth, so I set my DTA for just 2 files at a time.

maybe I'm doing it wrong but I have to highlight then go back and deselect all the ones I don't want ( eg VBR etc )which is kind of tedious. Then I have to go back and restart the ones that time out. I generally prefer torrents.

Go to the "tools" icon at the top, select Down Them All tools, peferences and select flac, shn, or whatever extension you want as the filter. It will only do those file extensions you chose.

If you mean for the Down Them All application, you can can hold down the Ctrl key, highlight the files that are stalled/timed out, and click "start" in the down them all box. If you mean refreshing web pages, the refresh button is on the tool bar next to the page back, page forward icons. It is an icon with an a arrow shaped like a half-circle, next to the "X" icon. Hope this helps.

Bring on the tea-D-um...what else do I have to do with my time now that the PATS truly suck? IE, since I don't have to work at making them suck, my mental energy has to be expended somewhere or another...

I just have always done the one at a time approach cause I am stuck with Explorer, and with all of its faults I find trying to switch over to Mozilla or some such is just too much for my pint sized (hmmm, micropint? think shot glass relative to healthy Guinness Pint) brain to handle...

Mozilla Firefox has a blue circle arrow that is the refresh, it is next to the red stop sign with the X.

At least mine does.

Down Them All is the right way to go for the SHN or FLAC. If you just want the mp3 for your iPod get the VBR zip file.

not sure on the itinerary as of yet - still researching that one. Cliffy,Koch, and JG have mentioned a few cool ideas/areas. Marie and I are tending toward a week in the northwest and a week in Sicily. Neither of us want to stay in a city, but want day trip access. Definitely looking for relaxation/scenery as opposed to crowds. Kinda overwhelming trying to figure out where to go/stay

I think planning is half the fun. Rick Steves is on our public radio and tv and has some great suggestions. Here's his Italy trips he and his company guides. You might be able to glean some ideas from him.

I find comic irony in the fact that "Wineland" is the first to congratulate you...eh?

I would sign in as "Beer Butt" to provide truth in advertising, but in deference to your lifestyle accomplishments, I will refrain. Hmmm, could I sue Heineken for the expansion of my posterior region to the approximate size of the Polar Ice Cap, pre-warming? They clearly have played a major role in this Global Development, and in the spirit of the New America, somebody HAS to pay up for my choices in life.

It's the American Dream!

Hey Finister- I too am a lzy POS and non computer guy, but once you have Firefox and Down Them All added/downloaded, my approach has been to right click and hold the button down highlighting all the files. Right click again and Down them All should show up, click on it, then i mark all the shn or flac files that I want downloaded and it takes it from there. Not hard, just takes a little trial and error-emphasis on the error!

Dire-well done man! 5 months is a fabulous feat. While I have never been to Italy or Europe, sometimes we forget the time space continuum of travelling abroad. Some of those counties are so small compared to what we drive around here in the states. Fuck, it takes almost four hours to get across stinking Missouri for crying out loud!Find a nice base in the middle of the county and day trip the hell out of it! Enjoy and again congrats on the life changes. I hope the effort pays off every day from here on!

just wondering...are you in a program that claims you can NEVER even enjoy one or two drinks, then have the simple willpower to be moderate & stop. Or are you helpless to stop till yer stinko-drunk? The I'm helpless/all or nothing program.
I realize a problem is a problem, and I admire that the quality of your life is waaaay improved with sobriety. I used to drink ALOT at times, but now I'm very moderate..but can enjoy a cool one or glass of vino.

(remember moderation & willpower?) I now struggle with sugar, salt & fat...will have to give the PC over to the landlady at 6am, be back in the afternoon. Have a grate Italian vacation, and congrat's on the upcoming marrige!

Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: 'save target as' for soundboards: what does it really mean?

technically i am not in any program. i have stopped going to AA. Every time I left a meeting, all i could think about was wanting a drink. Not going, I think about drinking far less. Obviously, I am never going to rule out a return to AA - I think it is a great program - but for the time being, it is not for me.

But, to answer your question, I tried several times to moderate my drinking. Willpower does not even exist once I have a drink or two. Whether people wish to consider it a disease or not, I CANNOT stop once i start. I may survive for a week or two having two or three drinks, but after that everything goes out the window. In no time, I am drinking 8 shots within the first hour. I HAVE to get slammed - no iffs, ands, or buts about it. It turns into an all-consuming, obsessive NEED. Very very few true alcoholics can ever go back to drinking in moderation - it just doesnt happen, biologically or statistically.

And even if i could somehow manage moderation, I just have no desire to be a social drinker. I am done with booze. My body is done with booze - i cannot risk it, or i will most likely leave my children without a father (or so the doctors have told me). Very few people here, or in my "real" life, know how bad things became physically for me. I wouldnt wish it on my worst enemy.

For now, I go one day at a time. I have two beautful children that are SOOOOO happy dad is sober. I have a wonderful woman in my life (also sober). My ex is happy that her daughters may actually have a Dad for (hopefully) a long time to come.

Basically, I have never, ever been happier. This is the first time I have not had any form of "buzz" for five months in 30 years - since i was 13 years old. Sad - but it has led to me to this: a new world has opened for me and I am gratefully embracing every moment while i live.



(ok - enough soliloquizing - i went on a bit too long on that one - lol)

best answer I've heard on that subject, an AA friend of mine told me some people are genetically(sp)prone to just what you explained. And not a matter of willpower. I knew someone who drank a 5th of Jack a day- and functioned well-(it seemed). Till he died of liver cancer at 45. My aunt smoked a pack of unfiltered Camel a day until she quit cold turkey at 80. I used to be able to put away a box of Whitmans Sampler(1lb)with no prob...of course, i barely have teeth now :P
Amazing, the human body!

Glad to hear it Dire, brutal honesty. I myself never went to AA or any other 'support' group type meetings. I simply woke up one day after a night of serious drinking and there were my (at the time) 6 & 3 year old standing there looking at me hungover on the couch - I decided right then and there that they deserved better. And that, plus willpower, was all I needed to not drink.

Now let me tell you . . . don't try and get between me and my Coffee!!!
